Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
57 years later, Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team during her hypersleep. The moon from the original movie has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
Almost eleven years after the futile and disastrous expedition on the distant moon LV-223, the deep-space colonisation vessel Covenant equipped with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation, sets a course for the remote planet Origae-6 with the intention to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission will entice the crew to a nearby habitable small planet which resembles The Earth. The unsuspecting members of Covenant will have to cope with biological foes, beyond human comprehension. Ultimately, what was intended as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation deep into the cold infinite space. Written by
Several music cues and sound effects throughout the movie are identical to the music and sound from Alien (1979) See more »
The landing crew are shown walking down the ramp and wading through water upon landing; when running back to the ship the land is dry and they walk onto the boarding ramp on dry ground, when the camera angle changes we see water around the ramp again. See more »
So, let me get this right...a studio green lights this pathetic project with multi-millions of bucks, despite a script with more holes in it than a Trump speech, worse acting than a school musical and sadder CGI than a fifties Godzilla film. The mind boggles at this garbage. The really disappointing thing is it started out so well...but rapidly descended into a joke. Hollywood seriously? Are you that stupid? How can so much money produce such a crappy film? Where are the good scriptwriters? Just how often are you going to insult your audiences until you've lost them completely? Aliens Covenant is total garbage. Yeah it's kinda stomach churning and mildly tense in parts but the ridiculous way it's itself set up can't help a viewer feeling cheated. I walked out of this dumb film wanting a refund. It was stupid on almost every level. But the scriptwriters need to be singled out for their utter incompetence. The story is incredulous. It also is so far removed from the Alien franchise that I left thinking Ridley Scott really needs to give it a rest. Or else employ some decent scriptwriters. There's no excuse with this budget for such a lousy result. Just stop already.
